Thanks to Prof. Scott Ashmon of Concordia University Irvine for yet another great quote, this one from Martin Luther:
“How dare you not know what can be known?”
(Quoted in Robert Benne, “A Lutheran Vision/Version of Christian Humanism” Lutheran Forum 31 (1997): 42.) [Does anybody know the source in Luther's Works? Or is this one of those apocryphal sayings of Luther? Even if so, it's still a great line, an explosion of Christian anti-intellectualism.]
How might this principle be applied?
